Tokyo Shoegazers LLLL Announce Debut LP for Zoom Lens with "You"

FADER PREMIERE

Been on a major Zoom Lens kick lately—the California-based label was featured last week in Adam Harper's essay on new digital DIY labels, then co-founder Meishi Smile hooked us up with snapshots of his first Japanese tour. They've just been really on their gaaaaaame with super-sensitive, vaguely shoegazey synth stuff, whether it's Yoshino Yoshikawa or Meishi or the prolific and underrated mood-setter i-fls. My most anticipated release, though, is Paradice, the full-length debut from LLLL, the Tokyo group who I first fell for in 2012, when I got apparently really worked up on earth-science metaphors and likened their sound to a tight fireball and seeds caught in a tornado. "You," the first track they've shared from the new album, deserves all that and more—feels like a mountain moved with a square wave. You can preorder the album now before it comes out one June 17th.
